More Easter Crafts!
Zoë made an Easter wreath!  It took a few more chicks than anticipated (I think the final count is 170, which exhausted the stocks of Poundland Leamington). So maybe use a slightly smaller  hoop than we did, or space your...

Pretty knitted wash cloths
I have a post by Zoë!:

Our new Retro Designed canisters make great kitchen storage, but they would also look lovely in a bathroom to keep all those little bits and pieces tidy. To go with the canisters you could knit a set of face cloths in coordinating colours. I have used Rico Essential Cotton Soft as it had the shades closest to the designs, I used Melon, Anthracite and Smoke. However, you...
Pom-pom Tutorial

Here's a tutorial on how to use our pom-pom makers:...

Necessity is the mother of invention
My lovely, lovely fella, Nic, bought me my Kitchenaid a couple of years ago. There are a few brands of mixer available, but Kitchenaid wins. They look the coolest, which means you are far more likely to leave them on display all of the time, which means you're far more likely to actually use them!

My favourite recipe book is The Grand Central Baking Book. The page containing their Oatmeal...
Tutorial - Cover a Diary or Notebook
A common topic of conversation here at Berylune is whether or not we should blog craft tutorials. As we're pretty much always making something new around here, we've decided it won't take us long to photograph what we're doing and share it with you.

Our first tutorial is for a fabric cover for a notebook or diary. We needed a couple of diaries so we could keep track of our increasingly busy...
